Spotlight On Luxury: Lake Tahoe

PrecisionCraft has designed and built custom luxury homes for the past 30 years. In that time, we have seen homes built in rural properties as well as resort towns. One such resort town that has seen an increasing amount of growth is the Lake Tahoe area, and for good reason! Nestled on the California and Nevada border, this picturesque area enjoys panoramic views of the Sierra Nevada Mountains from wherever you are on the lake. It is no wonder tourists and homeowners alike flock to its shores. Because of the continued popularity of this area, PrecisionCraft opened a Design-Build office to serve the greater Lake Tahoe area and those who want to call it home, either on a full- or part-time basis.

There is Something About Lake Tahoe…

For anyone looking for a change of scenery, Lake Tahoe does not disappoint. Known for its clear blue water, Lake Tahoe is the largest alpine lake in North America. Surrounded by coniferous pine and fir trees and mountains in the distance, the landscape is both awe-inspiring and breathtaking.

In addition to the dazzling views, the area abounds with activities year-round. With hot, dry summers and cold, snowy winters, the area fully experiences all four seasons. In the winter, outdoor enthusiasts come from all around to ski at the numerous ski, snowshoe, and snowmobile resorts. In the summer, the lake is filled with jet boats, paddleboards, and fishermen all out enjoying the beautiful water. Others opt to spend hours at the numerous golf courses improving their game and enjoying the views. For those willing to try their luck, there are multiple casinos in the area as well. If you are feeling less lucky, there is always shopping, biking, or hiking trails nearby. [i]

Why Build In The Lake Tahoe Area?

With all the amazing activities and beautiful views, it is no wonder Lake Tahoe has drawn so many people to its shores. This region creates the perfect balance of restful peace and outdoor activities, sometimes combining the two. Chances are, if you have something you want to do, Lake Tahoe will provide.

Today’s tourists and homeowners are not the only ones to recognize the jewel that is Lake Tahoe. Throughout its history, many trappers, mapmakers, and even a poet struggled to capture the essence of this lake and called it by different names throughout the years. Others found potential in this land when silver was discovered and Lake Tahoe became the transportation hub for mining and logging. Rich in both natural resources and views, Lake Tahoe gained one of its first summer homes today known as Vikingsholm. Sheltered in Emerald Bay, this 38-room Scandinavian-style home has been around for almost 100 years. [ii]

What Should You Build In Lake Tahoe?

Lake Tahoe has seen a good deal of growth in the past few years and PrecisionCraft has been a part of it. Our award-winning, in-house design team has helped create multiple custom homes in the area. See some of our recent projects below.
